I know there are organized protests against the cos, but how come people
havent aggressively written the authorities???? Senators etc can have a
great effect, and can do alot more than simply make law.
Plus certain legislatures can be especially effective if they have
special interests. Do they want to reform the legal system? Give them
the details of how the cos has abused the legal system. Are they pro
children? Give them stories such as the bellow: (a repost)
THE ROAD TO XENU
by Margery Wakefield
On another day, Aileen called me into her office and said, "I want you to
go help out at the nursery. They are short staffed."
I followed her directions as I walked the twenty or so blocks to a small
windowless building on Franklin Street. So this is where they keep the
children, I thought to myself, suddenly realizing that I had seen no young
children in the weeks I had been in Scientology, even though I knew many
of the staff were married. As I passed the fenced back yard, I saw a dozen
toddlers wandering around in the dirt, clothed only in diapers. There
no grasst were just wandering in
the hallway or sleeping on the bare floor. The rooms were bare of
furniture and there were no toys, books, or any of the normal and
signs of childhood. I could smell urine in the room, and I heard many
"Do they sleep here?" I asked her.
"Yes, most of them do." She showed me a room further down the hallway.
In the room were rows of cribs, side by side, about a dozen in all in the
small room. "Some of the Sea Org children stay here, and some are sent
to a ranch in Mexico if their parents are going to be on a mission for a
long time," she explained.
"But don't the parents miss their children?" I asked.
"Remember," she told me severely, "children are part of the second
dynamic. The third dynamic (the group) is more important than the
second dynamic. The rule in Scientology is `the greatest good for the
greatest number of dnant." She bent over the edge of the pen
and stroked the baby's head. The baby seemed to be having trouble
breathing and her eyes looked clouded.
"She's blind, but she can hear you. We just talk to her and hold her.
I don't think she's going to live very long." Colleen reached down and
picked up the poor creature and handed her to me. I spent the rest of
the day holding and walking with baby Lisa. I walked around and tried to
make contact with some of the other children. They crowded around me,
desperate for attention.
At the end of the day, I left the building and walked home, numb with the
shock of what I had seen during the day. From that day, whenever I
received any money from home, or had any money left from my meager
Sea Org pay, I would walk over to the drugstore on Alvarado Street and
buy cheap children's books or crayons for the children of the Cadet Org.
I returned to the Cadet Org several days later for another babysitting shift
and was told that baby Lisa had died two days earlier.
